An email filter is a piece of software that’s installed on a mail server and monitors all inbound emails in order to prevent any unsolicited ones from entering a specific inbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention of infecting your computer. Email filters normally check the content of an email and if they come across certain keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the message or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting providers combine their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of protection for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other info about spam emails recently uncovered by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting
If you get a cloud web hosting package from our company and if you make use of our mail services, you will be able to enable spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a few clicks of the mouse, you can select between five different levels of safety. In case you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually increase the level until you stop receiving spam. We use one of the best and most popular email filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header and the body of every message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a given email or permits it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to configure custom email filters and either get rid of unwanted email messages or re-send them to a 3rd-party address like spam@domain.com where you can check them again at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server plans offer first-class spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin filter, which rates all inbound email messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of specific keywords, the subject, the sender, etc. When you enable the filter for any account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between five different levels of safety – from very high to very low. If you continue to receive junk email messages, you can raise the level, or if genuine messages are blocked as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection requires as little as two mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered emails should be erased instantaneously or if they should be redirected to a designated email account where you can review them at a later time, so as to make sure that important messages will not disappear.
